Summary
"From the founder and CEO of YourTango, the wildly popular love and relationship website, comes a refreshing, new approach to finding love and making it last. With a feminist sensibility and an engaging, energetic voice, Radical Acceptance shows how loving someone without judgment is the ultimate gift you can give to them--and to yourself. Are you in love with the man beside you now or with the man you wish he could one day be? What if you were able to let go of your itch to fix, judge, improve, control, or even nag your partner? There is tremendous empowerment and liberation that comes from loving someone--and being loved--unconditionally. This is called Radical Acceptance. Whether you're looking for Mr. Right or learning how to build a life with him, this is your powerful five-step guide to creating a happy, lasting relationship. It's easy to love the lovable parts of your partner. He's funny, charming, smart, successful, and wonderful. Except for when he's not, i.e. when he is late, crabby, disheveled, and has just loaded the dishwasher incorrectly--again. Through Radical Acceptance, you'll learn how to distinguish between challenges and deal-breakers in a relationship; improve communication; build empathy; manage conflict; embrace vulnerability; and truly appreciate your significant other. You'll also discover that the things about your partner that you struggle with are often your own vulnerabilities and hang ups being mirrored back at you, which in turn offers you a powerful means to grow, evolve, and truly love yourself. Featuring compelling stories from real-life couples and input from the foremost researchers and thought leaders in the fields of health, sexuality, brain science, psychotherapy, and neurobiology, Radical Acceptance explains how embracing your partner for exactly who he is will bring you a more harmonious relationship, while also providing an unexpected path to your own personal transformation"--
